Synopsis: Stanley tries to enter Massachusetts in a dog show sponsored by his fathers advertising company, not understanding that he is considered a "relation" of his father, and thus ineligible.
Two crooks, Smiley and One-Tooth, rob the ticket booth, and Mr. Gerber threatens to fire Mitchell, but Massachusetts appears and scares them right into the hands of the police.
Since the best Stanley can do is say "Mathatoothis," readers are encouraged to write in with a new name. Massachusetts explains that he took the name after the Massachusetts Indians, the first people who were kind to him.
Synopsis: Rudy and Rhoda keep dousing their father when they mean to douse Mr. Laundryman. The two go to perform in a rock contest, but Reggie Van Stynker III, the self-described Meanest Kid in the World, attempts to thwart them. M.C. Happy Hap Hopper lets the Brat Finks modify their act to involve tomato masks and balloons in order to better compete with the costumed performers.
Synopsis: Fauntleroy Fox is lonesome and orders a canary from the pet store. Crawford Crow notices a "boy wanted" sign at the pet store. When he learns his first delivery is to Fauntleroy Fox, he puts the canary in Fox's mailbox and presents himself as a "Mesopotamian canary" and takes Fox's food, eventually pushing him out of the house. The real canary and Fox team up to get him out.
Synopsis: Fauntleroy Fox receives a delivery of money and jewels that go into the safe under his house. He then receives another shortly thereafter and doesn't know what to do with it. Crow says that he should spend the money for him, and Fox eventually concedes, but it turns out that Fox owns all the stores from which Crow buys, which causes the money to come right back to him.
In the end, Fox builds a storage shed for his money out of the jewels and uses the bills as shingles.
